UAE National Day Cup 2019 Kicks Off with a Win for AM Polo Team


Five teams are set to compete in a week long tournament held in honour of UAE's 48th National Day.

The opening match between Habtoor Polo and AM Polo teams began with a fast lead for Habtoor Polo ending the first chukker at 2 - 0. AM Polo showed a steady performance and took the lead at the end of the third chukker having 5 goals to 4. Both teams gunned for the win as alternate goals were scored during the final chukker. The last 90 seconds of the game almost assured a fifth chukker only to be settled by Tomy Iriarte as he delivered the winning goal for AM Polo team ending the match with 7 goals to 6.
